Angelica tea (Aralia elata) supports heart health and cardiovascular health. It’s included in CardiAce Heart Health Kits.
Aralia elata, also known as Angelica, is an herb commonly used in traditional medicine. The plant is from the family Araliaceae (Ginseng family), and it’s native to eastern Russia, China, Korea, Japan, and northern Asia.
Aralia elata herbal extract is commonly used in traditional Chinese medicine and Korean medicine. Aralia elata polysaccharides may improve cardiovascular function by reducing oxidative stress, restoring the metabolism of biological macromolecules, and inhibiting inflammatory signal pathways to alleviate inflammation. Aralia elata saponins may also help improve coronary blood flow and cellular energy. The roots and stems are anodyne and carminative.

Heart Health Benefits
Aralia elata is perhaps the most cardio-specific adaptogen. Used regularly, Aralia elata extract can improve the heart’s ability to function during stress. This can enable the heart to become stronger with less risk of damage to the heart muscle during strenuous exercise.
As a heart-specific adaptogen, Aralia elata can help moderate blood pressure and regulate the heartbeat rate. Having the heart work in optimal health can improve overall physical wellbeing and performance.
In addition, Angelica tea is often used to support circulatory health. Scientific studies have shown that Angelica tea regulates cholesterol production to support effective cardiovascular function. It limits cholesterol absorption and promotes the production of bile juice, reducing the risk of circulatory problems.
A 2016 study published in Phytomedicine indicates that “Promising stress-relieving effects of Aralia are reported for people whose work requires a high level of attention. Its proposed ability to moderate stress-induced damage and dysfunction in the cardiovascular tissue might make Aralia the adaptogen of choice among patients with higher risk for cardiovascular diseases.”
